This is definitely a technique I want to try. Thanks, Helen.
Posted by: LJ Meyers | September 30, 2011 at 01:40 AM
That is a great idea. I've used fabric paints and permanent markers to color fabric but your technique looks so much softer and usable. I didn't know about the stuff you used to make the colors permanent. I'll have to try it. Thanks for sharing.
Posted by: Mom C | September 30, 2011 at 01:37 AM
Helen, I have been following your posts with the stitches and have been enjoying it a lot. I am trying to improve my stitching and your directions have been very helpful. Thanks for sharing them with us. I saw you over at Stash Manicure today and just love the pencil coloring. My friends and I were just discussing crayon coloring on stitching but this way looks even better. Can't wait to tell them about this.
Posted by: Kathy H | September 30, 2011 at 01:28 AM

Thank you very much. I like the pattern and the way of working with the colors. I have to see if I can get the glue in the Netherlands for finishing.
Good luck with your fine designs.

And thank you for the tutorial on Madam Sammi's blog...and all of the others I found while looking around your blog! So much knowledge shared!
Your post today was very timely for me. Yesterday I colored 4 blocks for a baby quilt I am giving as a gift. I was thinking I needed to find instructions to make sure I did it right before sewing them into the quilt...now I don't have to! Lovely job of explaining. The only thing I did different is how I stableize the fabric for drawing. I drew my own design on the dull side of freezer paper. Then I ironed it onto the back of my fabric and traced and colored it. The fabric doesn't move and I have a reusable pattern if I wish to keep it for another quilt.
I'm looking forward to looking around your blog more. I'm following so I don't loose you, lol.
